    macro algae, weird inverts, photography, sleeping, research/learning new things
  1. My HOB leaked overnight ๐Ÿ˜  a very small and slow leak, but I noticed some water on the new stand I just moved the tank to. Its leaking from where the outside motor slides into the plastic mold. Maybe silicone grease would fix it? If not I might have to use silicone sealant.
  2. Congrats on being able to finally get a tank started! I'll be following along
  3. Beautiful pics and those shells are a nice find!
  4. How did you collect your macros? Were they washed up on the beach or did you pluck them off rocks in the intertidal? If you are collecting off rocks, try to remember where they were growing, was it in a dark crevice, under a shady rock, or in the surf zone with lots of wave action? For example, sometimes fluffy reds prefer shade, and some other species need strong current or they will melt away. If they were washed up on the beach, they may have already been on their way out, even if it didn't appear that way at first.
  5. I think the black and white ones are more common IME. Sometimes you can find really cool ones though! Thanks for sharing your brittle pic ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Nice Yuma pics! And your shrooms look good too! For future corals, couldn't you have both? GSP and the mini red carpet
  7. Sorry to hear about the job, I hope you can find an even better position! It's always fun to find your hours of staring at a rock pays off Hopefully more babies will pop up soon!
  8. I love getting packages, especially when there are aquarium goodies inside! ๐Ÿ˜„ Got my long tweezers, scissors, and HOB! The HOB is cute and fits perfectly on the end of the tank, with no room to spare. Turns out the intake tube is adjustable, so that's nice. It's very quiet and seems to have decent flow. Another addition, like my new ring? Found this brittle under a rock today and it wouldn't let go of my finger So I took it home for the pico
  9. One day I'll set up a 12 long or 22 long and that tank (and Scorched's tank) will be my inspiration. I tried to scape a bit more like a FW tank, although since macros don't have the same growth forms as plants, it may turn out very different Thanks! I hope so! Yeah I was considering moving that rock. But unless I add seagrass to this tank (unlikely in the near future), the only macro I'll have in the sand will probably be Halimeda. Possibly Caulerpa but I'll have to keep it trimmed back.
  10. I didn't even know you could order them from Algae Barn. Hopefully they can ship you a female soon!
  11. Glad to see this tank is still running! ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm sure you can sneak it in your dorm
  12. Speaking of sterile-looking rock, here's pics when I scaped the tank (still a little cloudy at the time). Still not sure if I will settle on this scape ๐Ÿค” I came across pics of Halophia's old sunlit seagrass tank and it makes me want to rescape lol. And invest in a bookshelf tank like I've always wanted..
